So, is it the LaBelle version of 'Lady Marmalade' or the Christina Aguilera/Lil' Kim/Mya/Pink version?

Does it really matter? I guess not.

Anyway, "Lady Marmalade" is just one of the fabulous pop songs that will appear on Nintendo of Europe's upcoming music game, Jam with the Band. Others: "I’m A Slave 4 U," "Material Girl," "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?"

The DS title--a localized version of 2008's Daigasso! Band Bros DX--will include a number of Nintendo game songs, too, including tunes from F-Zero, The Legend of Zelda and the Super Mario Bros. series.

Jam with the Band will come with 50 pre-installed songs, according to the press release Nintendo of Europe sent out this morning, while approximately 50 more will be downloadable via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Also, users will be able to upload their own tracks and download those created by other users.

The title will hit European store shelves on May 21. Hopefully Nintendo of America will announce its release soon.

You mean they're actually going to be using the Wi-Fi to the best of its abilities on SOMETHING!? I'm shocked. I don't know if they should take that risk...I mean, XBox and Playstation have been doing it for years with no issues, but we can never be too safe!

*insert sarcastic face here*

I'm actually really excited for this game!

I wouldn't go too far, Justin. From what I've heard, the game does use the DS' Wi-Fi capabilities, but doesn't mean it uses them to the fullest extent. All I know at this point it that people can upload their creations and download the creation of others. I wonder how they'll deal with copyright usage, though -- such as, if I made a track that sounded like Lady Gaga's "Telephone" and uploaded it...

Oh...yeah...I hadn't thought of that.
